Lens adapter question

1 year 4 months ago #710147 by MrBigfoot
Hello there
Time to put your camera expert brains to work. ;)
I am currently using an Olympus e-500 camera. 
I am currently saving up to buy either a canon or Nikon camera.
But that purchase is still a ways off.
I am looking new lens and the Four Third style has been discontinued. Thus I am looking at the canon and Nikon lenses that I could use on a newer camera in the future.
Now my understanding is because the mount is different I would require an adapter. So my question is what adapter and lens would you recommend.
I am looking at a 75-300+ mm as well as something wide angle.
Thanks in advance.

Think of it this way.  Nikkor lenses are designed for Nikon bodies and Canon lenses for Canon bodies.  No need to make it any more complicated than that.  Determine which system you want and stay within it.

You shouldn't go for a cheap lens adapter, as the cheap ones often don't provide many features and fit loosely (creating light leaks and aberrations). And good one will run you from $400 to $600.

I suggest you live with what you've got, and save your money for your new kit. After all, the lenses will be the most expensive part of that kit, so don't waste money on something that you'll grow out of.

So, I'm understanding that you are saving… or not! 

Light is free… capturing it is not!
